I have been talking to one of the giant home builders about a land analyst/ land acquisition manager role. I'm curious though what should I expect in a role like this. It seems that they are constantly scouting land deals, buying vacant lots and raw land in order to keep up with their growth. I feel as if this is one of the more interesting positions in all of the real estate field, as one could develop significant experience in buying vacant lots to construct new homes, as well as land assemblages, and experience in acquiring raw land. For me the goal is to strike out on my own as soon as possible, and my immediate goal is to start building 3-4 houses a year. Does anyone know what it's like to work for a giant public builder, and would doing land deals for these guys play well into eventually being able to do land deals on my own. I'm looking for more of a fast pace environment where I'm constantly being able to underwrite and close deals, instead of the commercial arena where everything moves slow as fuck. Are there any downsides to working for a giant public home builder. I'd appreciate the feedback.
